In memory of Chuck Hanes
our class bought a huge wind chime for the family for them to use as they wish.
They are thinking about using it in a gazebo at "Chuck's House" (like "Brian's House) that they have plans to build in West Branch.

Debra lived life well on her terms with ease through good times and bad. From her perfect golf swing to her beautiful accelerating ski turn, to her extraordinary cuisine, she made everything seem easy. A high intellect and grace with people helped in many careers including managing the Saginaw health department, instructing at NCMC and teaching at the Harbor Springs High School.

Those who knew her well are devastated, those who knew her less already sense that a light has passed.

Good-bye Sweet Beauty, Good-bye
